well it's still got the stupid, noisy, quickly worn out, dry clutch. yea yea they are better at grippin'.. but I don't like changing clutches at 8 to 9K miles. My japs have lasted 3 times that and then some. as for the S, nothing more than Ohlins slapped on. and something called Diamond Like Coating DLC.. WHAT?? a crock.
I already got snookered buying and over priced 999, only to be "one upped" by the 1098, thereby making my '05 999 worth it's weight in recyclables.
